Progress on the reimagined, darker take on Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a Buffy the Vampire Slayer-type horror series is underway, as the showrunner of Riverdale shows fans his progress on the script for the planned pilot for The CW.
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who has worked on Riverdale and is responsible for the horror comic Afterlife With Archie, has given fans a glimpse at the progress being made with the planned The Chilling Tales of Sabrina spin-off with a short look at the script for the pilot:

Aguirre-Sacasa also wrote the comic series that the television show that The Chilling Tales of Sabrina will be based on, although since that comic series is still ongoing, it’s likely the new show will diverge significantly from the source material in spite of the shared name. If anything, the television series ought to be a bit lighter than the comic, which is heavily horror-influenced, but still darker than the old Sabrina the Teenage Witch show from the 1990s.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is in development. In the meantime, Archie Comics fans can get their fix with Riverdale when the series returns on October 11, 2017.
10 Independent Comics Perfect For TV
I really don’t understand why so many great, independent comics are being ignored by Hollywood executives.
Marvel and DC dominated television in 2016 with the Arrowverse bringing the Legends of Tomorrow into the mix and Netflix adding both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to their expanding list of original titles. Comic book films also did well in the box office last year, even if the critics weren’t always too happy, so it seems from an investment perspective comic book properties are still a good bet. Independent comics are full of characters and concepts that have the potential to become the next big thing. Fortunately, with Valiant’s recent announcement of an online Ninjak series and FX finally naming a show runner for their Y:The Last Man adaptation, it seems comic fans have a lot to look forward to in the years ahead.
